NEMO Programs and the Healthy Watersheds
While the majority of national water quality programs focus on impaired waters, the U.S. EPA’s Healthy Watersheds program focuses on the conservation and protection of the healthy ones. The program focuses on identifying healthy watersheds and then pursuing a variety of Conservation approaches. Many of the approaches dovetail very nicely with the NEMO approach – watershed assessment and analysis using GIS, green infrastructure and landscape conservation, land protection, land use ordinances, etc. While the initiative is relatively new, it is one we are likely to hear a lot more about soon. This webinar will focus on what the program is, where it’s going, and how outreach programs like NEMO can contribute to it.
